Ubisofts live action adaptation of the Assassin’s Creed video game series finally has a release date. The film will be starring Oscar Nominee Michael Fassbender (Xmen: Days of Future Past). The movie had been set for a 2014 release date but had to be pushed back by Fox due to production issues.
The film is now slated to hit theaters December 21, 2016. Other than the release date and the lead actor, not much is now about the film. Fassbender did tease some details in an interview. According to Gamespot:
‘Talking about the movie last year, Fassbender said the Assassin’s Creed film will be respectful of the game. At the same time, however, the actor pointed out that “we also want to bring new elements to it and perhaps our own vision of things that already exist in the game.”‘
How excited are you for this film?
